use or if they are dangerous and unusual weapons. that was a dichotomy set up by the united states supreme court. if they are in common use like handguns we have to go to the second step of the analysis. if they are dangerous and unusual weapons like machine gun, the analysis would stop there. assault weapons are pretty commonplace. they become popular and firearms in a gun rights community. there are apparently tens of millions of these firearms out there, arguably they are commonly used, but one argument is while they are common they are not commonly used for the core purpose of the second amendment, self-defense. they are poor self-defense weapons. it is hard to maneuver in the home, and projectiles are propelled of such a rate they are likely to pose dangers and who people as they go through walls, endangering family members or neighbors. if that is right, assault weapons would not be thought to be within the scope of the second amendment, and yet i should admit we talked extensively that there are some reasonable arguments you could make against an assault weapons ban. an assa

, the government of the united states under the constitution is a limited government and the constitution is to protect the people from the government, not for the government to give people rights and powers that the government then, in turn, could take away. on the other hand, the constitution does give broad powers to the federal government but it separates them among branches and between the states and the national government. the framers believed these structures would adequately control the government so as to protect individual liberty. but the american people disagreed. they believed that the constitution gave the federal government so much power that it could be tyrannical and violate individual rights. so as a condition of ratification, they demanded and received assurances that a bill of rights would be added to the constitution. now, each of those rights, including the second amendment dealing with guns, was adopted to yet further limit government power and to protect individual rights. in other words, the people that wrote the constitution in 1787, in the spirit that they beli
of people thought that was in possible. how could we do that? nobody had been in orbit yet in the united states. what kind of rockets are we going to build to be given to do it, and what is the main principle? he was going to build a big spacecraft but we didn't have a rocket to go in. we needed to lift the spacecraft that would do everything. take people up, go to the orbit, land, a comeback and then back into the ocean again. it was a monster. so he needed a rocket for the 1970's. so we had one to carry the injection and the other to carry the big spacecraft until somebody said we met. if we look at what we want to do, which is to get a man on the moon and bring him back, let's look at the settlements of this instead of a spacecraft to do everything. >> 100 years from now -- i'm just throwing a question and i will go back to this -- that you touched on something hundred, 200 years from now or we going to look back at the space program and say how primitive. in the 200 years, where to go from here from new york come to london, how advanced is this thing going to get? >> time will tell o

is quite arguably our foremost foreign policy issue and challenge facing us today. the united states has spends more money to rebuild afghanistan than it has spent on the reconstruction of any other single nation, including germany following world war ii. we spend about $28 million every day to rebuild and reconstruct afghanistan. nearly 90 plus billion we have already appropriated for afghanistan relief and reconstruction is designed to build and strengthen the afghan national security forces, promote self-government, and foster economic development. it is my job and the job of my nearly 200 auditors, investigators, inspectors, and other professional staff to make certain this money is spent wisely, effectively, efficiently, and protected from waste, fraud, and abuse. to help you understand the challenges we face and that my sister inspector general's face in their roles, as well as what our country faces in afghanistan, let me start by telling you a little story, a story about one of our inspections. in the far north of afghanistan, bordering tajikistan, kunduz province. it has seen an

to really take the lead against the terrorists in northern mali. . this is hard. if the united states comes in and does something on her own, nobody can match us in military assets and prowess, but a lot of the challenges we face are not immediately or sustainbly solved by military action alone, therefore, we have to get countries in the region to increase their border security and increase their counterterrorist efforts inside their own boards. we have a lot to do now in west africa. so i think you're right to point out, the united states has to play a role, but it needs to be part of a multi lateral effort in order to have a chance at success. >> thank you, madam secretary. we have discussed many important issues. i remain concerned about whether the accountability review board captured the full picture of what happened, but i think we can agree to work together moving ahead to improve security in a number of different areas. this hearing now stands adjourned.

that the president of the united states is going to nominate a defense secretary who wants to go to war with iran, they've clearly not paid attention the last few years. the reality is to find someone who makes sure our national security is safe. and issues are protected but not simply someone who wants to rattle sabers and go to war. >> no one is saying go to war, but it's the worst negotiating technique in the world to take something completely off of the table and get nothing for it. basically, what you said to the country, whose president said they would like to write israel off the face of the map that we will not respond, we will not be aggressive. >> with all due respect, i don't want to sit there and listen to lecturing about national security from republicans and administration, the previous one that led us into two wars, including one we never had to fight. that being said, let's give chuck hagel his time and chance to defend himself and his case to why he should be secretary of defense. >> there are a lot of democrats who are not ready to support him. keep that in mind. >> i'm going to

senator who became president of the united states, and there was all of this high expectation for him which his aides will tell you that was a problem because they could never live up to the expectations. if you look at barack obama in that picture, it was sort of like, okay, let's do this, let's get to work. i have a lot i need to do. i'm thinking about what i've got to do over the next four years. very realistic. somebody who's established a real working relationship with his vice president. and i just think it's somebody who's sort of grown into that job and is ready to cement his legacy. whether that will be able to happen or not -- if you get health care reform in your first term and maybe immigration in the second, maybe that's as transformational as anybody can expect to be. >> do you think different man than he was four years ago? >> number one, in the bigger historical context, it is now common, it was rare in our history to have successive two-term presidents. is he different? this is a validation for him personally. when he won election four years ago, he made history as th

the ability to stand by them. what is the roster of portis that the united states had to focus on, a particular at the time of the global economic crisis when you have the middle east crisis, you had rising problems with north korea. that is what chuck hagel is saying. we do not have a magic wand to be all things to all people. you need to figure out how, given the limitations to have, you can matter and roll from those into the next issues. that is a realistic assessment, of a power that would even on the neo conservative side would also think that the part of the role of the united states is to go into the interior of these countries and try to redesign them so they are less of a threat to the united states and become more responsible contributors to the international system. when you have limited power, it makes someone like chuck hagel very skeptical of the ability of the united states to do that. that is a legitimate debate. but definitely when chuck hagel and jack reed traveled with president obama when he was running for office, i think this was part of their discussion. ho
